Did you know snakes hear through their jaws and smell with their tongues? Delaware Valley College students will be presenting, “The Six Serpentine Senses,” a free lesson for the community on the senses that snakes use to navigate their worlds, Thursday, Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. in the Mandell Science Building. Participants will have the chance to meet three very different snakes up close and personal, and will end the night by testing human senses against those of the snake.

The students, who are from a variety of educational backgrounds, are current members of DelVal's Animals in the Public Eye class, which offers students the chance to gain education experience through a series of public presentations.

“The Six Serpentine Senses” will be the culmination of the class for the students, who have previously presented in multiple locations around the Doylestown area, including the local library and Lake Nockamixon Nature Center.
